New in 2022, Fromm Petfest is proud to debut the Petfest Pals Program. This give-back initiative is dedicated to donating all attraction-based ticket sales from Petfest activities to animal-related non-profits. The program empowers our programming sponsors to nominate a non-profit organization dedicated to the animals (be that rescue, service-orientated or beyond) to be the recipient of all ticket proceeds from that title attraction.
Petfest Pals Recipients:

Lucky Mutts Rescue operate on a foster and volunteer based, not-for-profit model, and focus of dogs facing euthanasia due to placement in high kill shelters, overpopulation, abuse & neglect, or owner surrender.
We take pride in carefully screening every potential foster and adoptive home through a comprehensive approval process. We educate every potential adopter on the dogs’ needs, requirements and expectations involved with adding a new dog to their home. LMR provides a community of support for all of our adopters.

JR’s Pups-N-Stuff Inc. began with one goal in mind – to save animals from life threatening situations. That ideal has gotten us to where we are today. We’ve had quite a few happy endings and will continue to provide excellent homes to all future rescue dogs. We do not discriminate. We do not rescue dogs specifically because of their breed or age. We rescue animals that need us to save their lives. They may be at risk of euthanasia for many reasons. Primarily this is due to space limitations or health issues.
